Synopsis:

Five Things. That’s the title of the video I’m watching. Each day, a social media coordinator picks a fireman from the Hightower Hills Fire Rescue Station 99 to interview, and she asks him ‘five things’ about himself that the community may not know. I keep rewinding back to the man of my desire—Corbin Carmack.
If you ask me five things about myself that people may not know, it would go a little something like this:
1. I love a man with brown eyes.
2. I’ve never wanted a stranger as much as I do him.
3. I’m going to extremes that could get me tossed in jail just to steal glimpses of him.
4. For the last two months I’ve blown off friends, family, and everything in between just to stay up late at night and watch this video as I pleasure myself to sleep.
5. I set my house on fire to meet him.

In my defense, I never meant for there to be so much smoke. And I never meant to pass out before my firefighter hero could save me.
But, looks can be deceiving, and this firefighter is nothing like he portrays on social media. In fact, he’s much worse. He’s a cold-hearted bastard and I hope I never have to see him again.
But I do.
Because now he seems to appear everywhere I go. And I can’t get enough.

📝My Review📝:  5 Flaming Stars….. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Cold Hearted BastardCold Hearted Bastard by Logan Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy Five Alarm Hotness!

Fantastic! Funny, witty, sexy and an overall 5 Star read.

Wow! Just Wow!

I’m going say it simply; I loved this book! For me, the laughter started on the very first pages. What an outrageous character Olivia was. While I was reading, goosebumps overcame me. Olivia was a character I connected with categorically, on a crazy, level. I might have done or thought of a few of the crazy things Olivia did during my teen years, just saying, lol. However, let me be clear….never have I set my kitchen on fire! 🙂

Corbin was an incredible hero. Was he a jerk as the title suggests? Maybe…. I’ll tell you, once I got to know Corbin, which is pretty early on in the story, I didn’t have a single negative opinion of him. In fact, it was Olivia I found myself frustrated with now and then but nothing too awful. You’ve obviously read the synopsis, so you can infer the premise very easily. I’m not going into details. This book is like a beautifully wrapped gift. As you peel away the layers, anticipating the surprise, your excitement will keep growing. As you read on, you’ll love and appreciate that Olivia and Corbin got to know each other before intimacy. As silly as some of this story was to read, the plot and relationship development were believable.

Another great aspect of the author’s writing was the pace. Steady to fast; I couldn’t get to the happily-ever-after quick enough. Even better are the two epilogues. Still laughing!

I definitely recommend this book as a must read.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Synopsis:

Christmas is a time for family…

A mystery brings Ally Monroe to the idyllic seaside town of Cape Hope, North Carolina. On the quest to find out more about the father who abandoned her, Ally has no intention of getting too involved in the community. Only Cape Hope has a way of drawing people in and, before Ally knows it, she’s falling hard and fast in love with the whole town and its old-fashioned, charming ways – and particularly local single-dad Luke Miller and his adorable daughter Stella.

Volunteer firefighter Luke has been single since his wife died in childbirth six years earlier, making Stella his sole priority. But there’s something compelling about the beautiful out-of-towner and, before long, both Luke and his daughter are welcoming Ally into their home.

She came to Cape Hope looking for family and instead Ally found her way to Luke and Stella– but will they still want her when they realize she’s been lying to them about who she really is and what she’s doing in town?

Christmas with the Firefighter (Cape Hope, #1)Christmas with the Firefighter by Clare Connelly

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Christmas with the Firefighter is the first book in the Cape Hope Series which I believe will be a great series to binge. Christmas with the Firefighter is emotionally charged and while the story takes place over the Christmas holidays, there is much more to it. Both the hero and heroine are dealing with some emotional baggage.

Single father and widower, Luke Miller is an upstanding guy. He is ex military and currently a firefighter and handyman. He is doing his best to raise his young daughter. But as any single father of a young girl, Luke is still learning the ropes of fatherhood. It isn’t until Ally comes into his life that he thinks, just maybe, he is ready to find love again. He truly wasn’t looking for love again until he met Ally and their attraction couldn’t be denied. Their connection was strong and believable.

Ally is in town temporally and for one reason only. She is looking for her father to confront him for walking out of her life when Ally was still a child. There is a heartbreaking story there which I will let you read about on your own. While in Cape Hope, Ally is trying to stay low key. She is not planning to stay long, or date while in town. But once she meets Luke and his little girl, Ally finds herself tormented with her feelings of attraction. Since she wasn’t planning to stay, Ally didn’t think it was necessary to tell anyone the real reason she was in town. But as we know, secrets aren’t a good thing. Especially when they come to light and Ally is confronted before she has the chance to explain herself.

There were moments with Ally that had me tearing up. Even years later, as an adult, my heart still broke for the child who was abandoned by her father. Aside from Luke and Ally finding a happily-ever-after, I was really hoping that Ally and her dad would find each other again. This was truly a heartwarming book and I recommend it.

This is my first book by this author. It definitely won’t be my last. I’ll be looking out for more in the Cape Hope series.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

End GameEnd Game by Dee Ellis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a story of young love and how a variety of obstacles are prominent in getting in the way of a happily-ever-after. End Game is separated into three parts with two epilogues. The first half of the book is full of teenage drama. I swear, I felt like I was back in high school. In my mind, I was laughing because there were quite a few connections in this book for me during that first 45%. No, I was never lucky enough to catch the attention of the star quarterback however, my true connection was with Paisley, Hailie’s friend. While this book is Connor and Hailee’s story, we get a lot of Bran and Paisley as well. Just wondering if there will be a book in the future about them after college years.

So anyway, Hailee is the daughter of a retired military man. She has two wonderful parents and two protective brothers who will do anything for her. New to town, Hailee has grabbed the attention of Connor, the handsome, popular quarterback, who just so happens to be her neighbor. I want to mention that this book is a love-at-first-sight trope. In addition, Connor is an intense, over-the-top possessive hero. First friends, the growing relationship between Connor and Hailee is extremely intense. They were both possessive of one another and overly dramatic in several ways. While the sexual tension is a steadily growing burn, Connor and Hailee take things slow.

I don’t want to say anything about how the story unfolds because as I said earlier, there is quite a bit of teenage drama and the first half of the book was a little frustrating and monotonous at times. Because of the passion and heart of the H/h, I eagerly read on and truly enjoyed the second half of the book. As the few years passed since Connor and Hailee met, new obstacles brought out their maturity and the story became more endearing to me. Less over-the-top dramatic and more real life experiences. Once you finish reading, you won’t have a single doubt that these two absolutely adore each other. Their love for one another was so powerful and I was so happy with the ending. I especially enjoyed the bonus epilogue. It gives hope when there is darkness and fear for the future. Connor and Hailee learn that time is precious and they plan to live every day to the fullest.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

The moment I saw her walk through the door of Forbidden Ink, I knew she was the one. With her wide hips, thick thighs, and perfect breasts, she’s every man’s wet dream.

Add to that her dark, soulful eyes, pouty lips, and a body covered in gorgeous art, and I knew I needed to make her mine.

She’s a walking contradiction of sass and strength and determination, hidden by insecurity and self-doubt. She’s everything I could ever want or need, but she doesn’t see what I see.

I want to take away her pain. To be the one to make her laugh, to make all her dreams come true. I need to prove to her that I’m not him, that no matter what, I’ll be right there beside her. Loving her.

If only she could see herself through my eyes, she would understand we were made for each other.

Through His EyesThrough His Eyes by Nikki Ash

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When author Nikki Ash releases a book, I already know I’m going to #oneclick. Not because I’ve read all her books and they were amazing. But because the books of hers that I have read, I’ve enjoyed so much. And I read nine thus far, and hope to back-read anything I missed one day soon. The life of a blogger makes it hard to just read anything I want, anytime I want. Not complaining, just stating a fact. There is just not enough time in a day to read all we would like.

Through His Eyes was such a compelling book. The premise was real and believable. Quinn had been through so much with her previous marriage to a complete jerk. When is it okay for any man to make a woman feel less than beautiful and appreciated? To make a woman feel like she is never enough? Well the answer to that is never. But unfortunately when verbal bullying is all you know, it’s hard not to believe it.

This book is about healing. It’s about finding a way to love yourself once again; being confident and and able to trust in a man’s love once again. I appreciated how the author took her time with Quinn and Lachlan’s relationship. It was not rushed because otherwise it would not have been believable. That said, I also want to mention that this is an older woman/younger man romance. One of the issues Quinn has, on top of her already self-doubting, is that she thinks she is too old for Lachlan. Nikki Ash wrote Lachlan’s character to be mature for his age but still maintain his youthfulness. Again, another aspect that makes this book believable.

I won’t tell you much more so you can experience their journey on your own. However, I will tell you that Karma does make appearance when necessary. 😉 And that was another reason why this book was endearing to me. I highly recommend this book. If you haven’t yet read the previous interconnected books in this series, no worries. Through his Eyes is a stand-alone novel. Though, if you have the time I suggest you read the others as well. This will make your reading enjoyment even greater.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:  A Cowboy Under the Mistletoe

‘Tis the season for starting over for one military man turned cowboy in this new novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Cowboy and His Baby.

Former Navy master-at-arms Jason Clements is down on his luck and calling in one last favor. His cousin has secured him a job opportunity as a cowboy working at Price Ranch in Wyoming. Too bad Jason has never even saddled a horse. If he can keep this job without his PTSD getting in the way, it’ll be a Christmas miracle.

Local busybody Sage Cooper loves Painted Barrel something fierce, but it’s time for her to move on. Since her father passed away, the family ranch feels too big for just her, and there’s no chance of finding a husband in this small town. To the rest of the world, she’s just another local fixture, known for her closet full of ugly Christmas sweaters and being perpetually single.

It isn’t until Jason shows up in desperate need of a cowboy crash course that Sage discovers a tall, dark, and handsome reason to stick around. And with the holidays coming up, Sage is in need of a date for a special event—maybe they’ll turn out to be each other’s best Christmas present.

📝My Review📝: 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

A Cowboy Under the MistletoeA Cowboy Under the Mistletoe by Jessica Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, I loved this book so much!
Why haven’t I read this author before now?
If I could give this book more than five stars, I certainly would. This author wrote in a way that tugged every one of my heartstrings. At some point we all say, “every now and then a certain book will come along and once you finish, you are left will long sigh, a huge smile and a feeling like you’ve been awarded something special,” Well that was A Cowboy Under The Mistletoe for me. A truly endearing, heartwarming, poignant story. I am absolutely going to put time aside and read more from Jessica Clare.

Sage and Jason…..
This is a story that you’ll need to experience each emotion your own, so I’m not going to tell you anything that will take away from that. Sorry, no spoilers.

Sage grew up in a small Wyoming town called Painted Barrel. While she is friends with everyone in town, Sage still feels very much alone. Sage made a decision that once the Spring rolled around, she would sell her ranch and move on to a larger town where she can start over and hopefully find love. With her longtime crush (never noticing her for more than his friend) getting married, Sage realizes she needs a change. It’s time.

Jason Clements has a story. An endearingly, heartbreaking story. He desperately wants to fit in, wants to finally call someplace home rather than jumping around from job to job. Employment is something Jason is struggling with due to his PTSD. While Sage had me sad for her loneliness, Jason’s story had my heart bleeding. That said, I really appreciated how the author wrote his struggles so I could experience them with him. I was sad when he was sad. When Jason was afraid, I was scared with him. And when he found love, I was teary-eyed, not to mention, relieved.

This book was so perfect for a Christmas romance.

I don’t want to say anything more other than this is a must read and I recommend you check it out when it releases mid-October. This book will leave you truly feeling warm and exudes that special feeling that is in the air around the holiday season. A Cowboy Under The Mistletoe has all the feels, and then some.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

He’s never even kissed the woman, but her son is clearly, without a doubt, his.

Zach McCoy has been on the rodeo circuit for six years and is making a damn fine living at it. When he comes home, for the first time, to be in his best friend’s wedding he’s got one helluva surprise waiting for him in the shape of a five-year old boy who is his spitting image.

Emma Kipling took matters into her own hands six years ago, before the man she was crazy about took off to join the rodeo. She didn’t care one bit that he was two years older and she was still in high school, she wanted one night with him before he left to compete in a dangerous sport. When he didn’t come back after she found herself pregnant she knew he had abandoned her and her son.

Now he’s back for her brother’s wedding, and by the look on his face, sparks are going to fly. She’s ready and willing to go toe to toe with him and give him a piece of her mind.

Emma's Rodeo Cowboy: Burlap and Barbed Wire (Burlap and Barbed Wire Series Book 6)Emma’s Rodeo Cowboy: Burlap and Barbed Wire by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book six in the Burlap and Barbed Wire series is finally here! I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book specifically. I truly enjoyed all the prior books in the series but from the moment I met Emma, and the constant mentions of Zach, I knew there was a good story there. Well, this book was worth the wait. I absolutely adored both Emma and Zach. Especially Zach. While he is a sexy rodeo cowboy, he is also a gentleman. Zach was kind, sweet, loyal and loving. Without going into too many details, I’ll say I was sad for all he missed. You know, those awful misunderstandings and assumptions we love to hate in our romances? Well this book has that. I’m just so happy everything worked out.

Ok, I will also say that while their circumstances were nothing I’ve ever read before, I thought it to be a bit unbelievable when first mentioned. But as the book goes on, the author does a good job of helping me to believe something so unbelievable could truly happen. And that is all I will say about that, lol.

Emma and Zach are reunited after six years. As you know from the blurb, there is also a little person in the scenario now. I enjoyed the whole dynamic of Zach, Emma and Tony learning how to be a family, how they could make it work. There are a few obstacles in their road to Happily-ever-after. But their love is strong. It always was and that was all they needed. This book is low angst and enjoyable to read. I’m very happy I got to read this series. I definitely recommend the Burlap and Barbed Wire series from Shirley Penick.

This is my honest on unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

A new standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting.

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

Making Up (Shacking Up, #4)Making Up by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another incredible book from this author. Since I first started reading books by Helena Hunting, I have yet to be disappointed. All the emotions are there and all the boxes checked. Her heroines are smart and strong-willed as well as relatable and likable. Her heroes are always sexy and sinful, but gentlemen.

In this story, the oldest brother of the successful hotel mogul family finds his happily-ever-after. When he and Cosy meet for the first time, I was enamored. In just a few pages, I learned a great deal about Griffin. His shyness and vulnerability were endearing. I knew this man had a background I wanted a front row seat to. In addition, watching him with Cosy was like watching him truly experience life for the first time. Another aspect I loved about Griffin was the fact that while he is incredibly wealthy and not shy about spending his money on Cosy, he was not pretentious.

Cosy, is quite a bit younger than Griffin but that didn’t seem to be an issue once these two got to know each other. There are several bumps in their road to happy-ever-after and a good amount of angst in the book. But every bitten nail was worth getting to the end. I won’t get into any other details so you can enjoy this sweet story without spoilers.

This is definitely a must read. I just love how light hearted I always feel when a finish a Helena Hunting Book.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Failing wasn’t an option, but apparently falling for my professor was.

Attending the prestigious King University is one of the many things I must do to keep my parents happy and my trust fund secure.

Having a stellar transcript is another. Unfortunately, my grades are slipping and the only available option is setting up extra help with my professor.

After the first study session I know I’m in trouble. Her tempting lips and the honey scent of her perfume tests my resolve until it crumbles. One shared kiss and I’m willing to risk it all.

Professor Martínez may be my downfall, but falling never felt so good.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this one!
I admit I was wondering to myself how much I would enjoy this book. I have never been a big fan of the older woman/younger man trope. It’s just not something I connect with. However, I will also admit that this author has written two books in this trope which I enjoyed. Especially this one. First, I’ll say, I appreciated how the H/h didn’t just jump into anything. Both tried to fight it and the sexual chemistry and tension rose and burned at the perfect rate. Each of the main characters were dealing with life issues and just trying to get through each day, that would bring them closer to the resolutions they needed. Unfortunately, Harper and Connor could only keep away from each other for so long. The great aspect about that for me was that when this couple did connect for the first time, I believed it. And having both Harper and Connor’s perspectives helped a great deal with that. Both of their inner struggles made this book more complex, more honest and more enjoyable.

That said, while the relationship was simmering, the writing pace was perfect. Most of you know that Remy Blake is two authors. Another great aspect of this book is that you can’t tell there are two completely different author perspectives in this story. Every word flows perfectly into every sentence, then every page and chapter. Seriously, Debauchery is a great read that I highly recommend. This was book three and my favorite of the King University series. There are quite a few secondary characters in this book; especially Harper’s older brothers. I hope that some day, we might get books for them as well.

Another great five star read!

He’s never even kissed the woman, but her son is clearly, without a doubt, his.

Zach McCoy has been on the rodeo circuit for six years and is making a damn fine living at it. When he comes home, for the first time, to be in his best friend’s wedding he’s got one helluva surprise waiting for him in the shape of a five-year old boy who is his spitting image.

Emma Kipling took matters into her own hands six years ago, before the man she was crazy about took off to join the rodeo. She didn’t care one bit that he was two years older and she was still in high school, she wanted one night with him before he left to compete in a dangerous sport. When he didn’t come back after she found herself pregnant she knew he had abandoned her and her son.

Now he’s back for her brother’s wedding, and by the look on his face, sparks are going to fly. She’s ready and willing to go toe to toe with him and give him a piece of her mind.

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What does a geeky math nerd know about writing romance?

That’s a darn good question. As a former techy I’ve done everything from computer programming to international trainer. Prior to college I had lots of different jobs and activities that were so diverse, I was an anomaly.

None of that qualifies me for writing novels. But I have some darn good stories to tell and a lot of imagination.

I have lived in Colorado, Hawaii and currently Washington. Going from two states with 340 days of sun to a state with 340 days of clouds, I had to do something to perk me up. And that’s when I started this new adventure called author. Joining the Romance Writers of America and two local chapters, helped me learn the craft quickly and has been a ton of fun.

My family consists of two grown children, their spouses, two adorable grand-daughters, and one grand dog. My favorite activity is playing with my grand-daughters!

When the girls can’t play with their amazing grand-mother, my interests are reading and writing, yay! I started reading at a young age with the Nancy Drew mysteries and have continued to be an avid reader my whole life. My favorite reading material is romance in most of the genres, but occasionally other stories creep into my to-be-read pile, I don’t kick them out.

Some of the strange jobs I have held are a carnation grower’s worker, a trap club puller, a pizza hut waitress, a software engineer, an international trainer, and a business program manager. I took welding, drafting and upholstery in high school, a long time ago when girls didn’t take those classes, so I have an eclectic bunch of knowledge and experience.

And for something really unusual… I once had a racoon as a pet.

 

Join with me as I tell my stories, weaving real tidbits from my life in with imaginary ones. You’ll have to guess which is which. It will be a hoot!
